AICAR, short for 5-aminoimidazole-4-carboxamide ribonucleoside, is a short peptide that plays a role in energy homeostasis and a number of metabolic pathways. AICAR plays a role in the regulation of insulin receptors and how muscle cells function with regards to insulin. AICAR is under active investigation for its cancer-fighting properties and for its ability to protect heart/cardiovascular tissue. AICAR is an AMP kinase (AMPK) activator.
